Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Alabaster is a great wine from Toro, produced by the Eguren family. It is elegant and delicate as the alabaster after which it is named to pay tribute to the pots in which Egyptians and Greeks used to keep their best perfumes and scents.
Alabaster is made of Tinta de Toro grapes from very old vines, pre-phylloxera, with a very low yield. A sustainable agriculture is applied, using natural fertilisers and without weed-killers or pesticides. The grape harvest is conducted in a handicraft way and the grapes are carefully selected. When the grapes arrive to the winery, the grapes are selected grain by grain and are manually destemmed. The grapes are traditionally treaded and are fermented in open vats with smooth pumpings.
Both the fermentation and the ageing take place in French oak barrels where the wine stays for 18 months. It is recommended decanting this wine at least 4-6 hours before serving it. Huge ageing capacity.
A red wine difficult to forget. It is made to be slowly enjoyed in good company.

The winery Teso La Monja has become, despite its youth, one of the reference wineries in the area of Toro. 
And thanks to the Eguren family, this winery produces highly renowned wines with the traditional strength of the Toro wines but also providing a very fine and elegant palate, common denominator in the wines produced by this family.
Pictures and situation Teso la Monja
In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.
